ADOLF DIETRICH UND DIE NEUE SACHLICHKEIT IN DEUTSCHLAND (Adolf Dietrich and the Neue Sachlichkeit in Germany). Ed. by Dieter Schwarz. Kunstmuseum, Winterthur, 1994. Organized in association with Landesmuseum, Oldenburg. 200 pp. with 215 ills. (129 col.). 28 x 23 cm. LC 95-147570 ISBN 3906664007 In German.
A thorough study of the distinctive oeuvre of acclaimed Swiss naive painter Dietrich (1877-1957) that emphasizes his links to the Neue Sachlichkeit movement of the 1920s and 30s, this catalogue provides good reproductions of 100 crisply rendered landscape, portrait and still-life paintings and drawings produced by the artist from 1915 to 1937 as well as nearly 70 works by German painters Alexander Kanoldt, Franz Lenk, Georg Schrimpf and Franz Radziwill. Detailed chronologies of the careers of the featured artists and a brief autobiographical text by Dietrich augment eight essays that include a discussion of his affinities with Neue Sachlichkeit painters, evaluations of his landscapes, portraits and drawings, an examination of his association with the revival of German Romantic traditions in the 1930s, and a chronicle of his relationship with art dealer Herbert Tannenbaum.
